Moon is a very curious cat! Within minutes of being in foster care, Moon was exploring the apartment and batting at whatever toys he came across. He likes climbing and searching for comfy spots to lounge. Moon's favorite thing in the world is eating squeeze-up treats. If he hears a treat or food being opened, he'll run across the room, eager to dig in! In a close second, Moon loves toys of all shapes and sizes. Some of his favorites are a big stuffed cat, a fluffy ball with a bell, and a tiny mouse to chase around. When he isn't sleeping, playing, or eating, Moon enjoys supervising his human and chatting with very high pitched meows.
Speaking of meows, Mr. Moon is a chatty catty. It might take him a little time to settle in and get physically close to his people, but right out the gates he loves chatting with them from a distance. Moon likes to chat back and forth, especially about exciting toys, to alert you of any bugs he's hunting, and to let you know if he sees something concerning (like his own reflection in a mirror).
Moon enjoys his alone time and keeps himself entertained for hours on end. Whether he's "hunting" toys, relaxing in his cat bed, or watching "cat tv" out the window, Moon is perfectly fine if you're gone for work or a day out. He is also very easygoing in terms of maintenance. He eats what's in his dish, scratches where he's supposed to scratch, stays off the counter tops, and keeps himself clean and tidy. If you have a little patience while Moon settles in, he'll pay you back ten times over in love. Apply today to meet Moon!
If you are interested in meeting a dog or cat, we require an adoption application. If the animal has "HAS APPLICATION" listed, they are still available to receive additional applications but also may be in the process of being adopted soon.

City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue is a foster-based rescue in Washington, DC. We do not have a shelter. CDCK has a thorough adoption process to find the best possible fit for each of our dogs and cats.
Upon accepting a new cat or dog into the organization, we provide a basic vet visit that includes necessary vaccinations, disease screenings, deworming, microchips, and spay/neuter for dogs six months and older. We do not provide a comprehensive medical exam before adoption. As a result, sickness, injury, and disability may exist unbeknownst to CDCK. City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue is not responsible for payment of any vet care, including known and unknown medical conditions once a cat or dog is adopted from us.
Cat specific vetting: Rabies, FVRCP. Cats are tested for FIV and FeLV, when age appropriate, but not when born to a FELV/FIV negative mother in foster care.
Kittens have age-appropriate vetting to date, which includes deworming, microchip, and the first FVRCP vaccine. Kittens born in care to a negative mother will not receive a FIV/FeLV test. An adopter will need to agree to cover costs of spay/neuter when he/she is age-appropriate (usually 16-20 weeks) and will need to continue his/her kitten vaccines (including rabies) as he/she grows older. Kittens under 12 weeks of age must be adopted in pairs or to a home with friendly resident feline. They will not be considered as singles.
